Hi My goldfish Swimmy has been living in a 1 and a half gallon tank since 2008. He has always floated upside down since I bought him.  Today I noticed   2  red spots  on him.  I  moved his tank and  put new water in. He doesnt act to well. I have tried my best to keep him alive for he belongs to my 5 year old son.

first thing is he needs a least a ten gallon tank with good filter  stop feeding him for a few days and he might not float anymore. test the water tell us what your water quality is  put some melifix and pimifix . then we will try and help u out form there

I agree with Creamkiller. After not feeding the fish for a few days, you could try feeding it with frozen peas that you thaw and pop out of their shells before feeding.

BUT, GET THE BIGGER TANK FIRST!!!!!

hopefully a 10 gallon tank and no food for a few days will do it. Keep us updated!!

Correction: 20 gallon for one fish. There's enough water, but not enough space for an adult goldfish in a 10 g.
